Bulleid Q1: Love me tender

Bit of a delay on this one due to half term and various birthdays but the tender is now complete. As with the rest of the rebuild it's a lot more accurate than before - the storage lockers create a nice curve along the top of the roof panel rather than being simple boxes - and all of the controls are created to be working.

There's also a rather nice concertina cloth roof between the cab and tender. These were to help hide the firebox glow from planes during WW2 but due to their flimsy nature were broken quite quickly and never replaced after the war so will only be on the Southern liveried version.

So on to the next part, the cab...
